Step 8: Ship Up Movement


Let’s begin coding the ship’s movement in the game.

We need to code the ship to move up when we press the ‘w’ key.

Up on the computer is a change in the positive y direction.


  1. From Control, place an IF block.
  2. From Sensing, place a key block in the IF block.
  3. Set the key to ‘w.’
  4. From Motion, place a change y by block and set it to 3.
